The Encore Chorale invites you to join us for our Winter/Spring season of singing starting on Monday, January 12 from 2:00pm-3:30pm for 15 weeks at the Anne Arundel Community College. Registration is now open at www.aacc.edu/lifestages.
Encore singers improve their voices, meet new friends and enjoy a great new adventure singing challenging music in four parts in preparation to join other Encore Chorales from the Baltimore/Washington area for exciting community concerts. There are no auditions and singers may sit to rehearse and perform.
The value of choral singing in improving and sustaining the physical, mental and social health of older adults is documented and undeniable. Encore offers the opportunity to explore a new artistic venture for those who have not sung in years, or to continue a life-long passion for others. Singers learn vocal technique, proper breathing and posture, and always come away delighted by the weekly rehearsals.
Encore has 14 chorales in the Washington DC/Baltimore area serving over 700 older adult singers. This Winter/Spring, Encore singers will rehearse and perform, among other selections, the beautiful music of Les Miserables, Showboat, and Cole Porter. The AACC Encore Chorale will be joined by the Southern Maryland and Towson Encore Chorales for a performance at the AACC Pascal Center for Performing Arts in May.
The chorale is conducted by Jeanne Kelly, founder of Encore, who has had a 30 year career as an operatic performer, music school director, vocal instructor and choral conductor for, among other groups, the United States Naval Academy Women’s Glee Club and Georgetown University Concert Choir.
Tuition for 15 weeks of professional instruction, sheet music and concert performances is $161 paid to AACC through the Lifestages Program.
